Loss and Damage

LOSS AND DAMAGE

refers to the negative effects of climate change that people have not been able to cope with or adapt to. Loss and damage emanating from climate change impacts can be both economic and non-economic in nature. The concept was introduced in UNFCCC in the 13th Session of the COP in Bali, Indonesia and later, in Cancun Adaptation Framework in 2010.
